Christmas Fair a great success

Our annual Christmas Fair was held on Saturday. It was organised and run by the School Friends Association. The fantastic total of £2148 raised is being put towards the playground 'trim trail'.

There was a wide range of stalls and activities including: White Elelephant, tombola, raffles, books, toys, face painting, tattoos, biscuit decorating, lucky lollies, treasure map, parent presents, soap snow men and cakes. Our caretaker Mr Jenkins also ran a 'Higher or Lower' game and won a prize himself as ' Best Dressed Stall Holder'. Many of the children organised their own games stalls.
Thanks must go to the members of 'The Friends' who laid on refeshments throughout the day.

The highlight of the day according to Georgia (reception child) was the visit of Father Christmas. He gave her a lovely sticker book and talked to her about Christmas.

Egyptian Day

On Wednesday the children in Years 3 & 4 were involved in the much anticipated ' Egyptian Day'. This was an exciting day of eating, drama, singing and study. In the morning the children in groups prepared for the afternoon activities. They had to design their own pyramid, prepare an Egyptian meal, decorate temple pillars and organise entertainment.

In the afternoon the children took part in a role play scene with the Pharoah visiting his people. Various children were ' executed' or sent to the salt mines. The highlight of the afternoon was when the Pharoah (Mr Hawes) fell off his chair.

A good day was had by all!

Mr N. Hawes (Pharoah)
